– New Moon & Full Moon Manifestation Ritual –
Our New Moon & Full Moon Pack has been created by myself, to serve you and remind you that you have the power to manifest all that you desire. I first created candle therapy and incorporated it with the New Moon and Full Moon over 10 years ago. But, in 2013 I decided to not only share it with my clients, but to share this powerful therapy with the world. And voilà, my candle therapy book, “Light My Candle” was born.
This practice is very simple, and straight forward!
Let’s begin with the new moon. The darkness of the new moon represents the fertile soil of the land, in which we can sow our seeds of intentions so that they can grow and flourish for harvest by the time the full moon comes around. It is believed that as the moon grows, your intention will too. We use its power to manifest all that we desire. What every individual wants to manifest is different, and nothing is too small or too big.
Remember, the universe doesn’t know how big or small your desire is. The universe isn’t going to say, “hold up, you can’t manifest this cause it’s a 3-million-dollar lottery you are after. So nope, you don’t get it!” Instead, the universe works on your energy! It’s simple; your thoughts create a feeling, and that feeling creates your emotion which then determines your vibrational frequency. It’s not about lighting a candle, putting out the order with the universe and *kaboom* “your wish is my command!” It is for this reason, so many beautiful souls lose faith when they can’t manifest what they desire. The secret is that there are many elements that need working on before, during and at the end of your New Moon & Full Moon Manifestation Ritual.
Let’s start with your vibrational frequency. It is the rate at which our energy vibrates and emanates from our energetic fields. We are each like a radio transmitter, constantly emitting a frequency of some kind into the universe, which acts like a giant mirror and reflects the same frequency back to us. Your frequency determines the life that you’re creating and experiencing in the present moment. Remember, emotions reflect your thoughts, which are vibrations. A lovely thought has a high frequency vibration. High frequency is the vibration that the universe understands to deliver your wish. When your thoughts are vibrating high, you are allowing a positive emotion to come through. So, when you change your thoughts, you change your emotion. This in-turn creates a new outcome for your life, and this thought process happens in a nanosecond; it all starts with a thought.
Candle therapy prepares you and gets you ready for when you place your order with the universe. Before sitting the new moon ritual, you need to be clear about what you want to manifest into the world and prepare for a change. Your heart must be open to a breakthrough, so you don’t put out any intentions into the universe that you are not ready to receive what it is that you are trying to manifest. I will help you through this process with your worksheet that we have provided for you in our New Moon & Full Moon Manifestation Pack. We will help guide you through this so you can unlock the moons’ full potential and power. The new moon is all about new beginnings and letting the universe know what you want. It’s about releasing, trusting, giving thanks, and having gratitude for your amazing and abundant life.
The new moon is the perfect time for a reset. It symbolises wiping the slate clean, embarking on new beginnings, and planting new seeds of intention. The full moon on the other hand is all about harvesting those seeds of intention that you place during the new moon.
The moon has 8 phases that you could work with:
- New Moon
- Waxing Crescent
- First Quarter
- Waxing Gibbous
- Full Moon
- Waning Bibbous
- Third Quarter
- Waning Crescent
But, we will only work with the two – the new moon and the full moon.
You will receive two worksheets; one is to use on the New Moon Ritual, and the other is for the Full Moon Ritual.
What you will need to prepare for the New Moon and Full Moon Ritual:
- You will need to lock in a time.
Give yourself an hour to do the ritual. If you are going to include a bath before your ritual, give your self an extra 30 mins on top of the hour. Locking in a time means that you are stepping into your power. It’s self-love; your time alone without any interruptions.
- You will need your New Moon Candle, or Full Moon Candle (depending on which moon phase you are working with).
Remember, we always start with the New Moon Ritual first. Your candle has been cleansed before we send it out to you and set it with an intention that all you desire will be heard, and grow with the filling of the moon. Your candle has three crystals. The crystals all have a purpose throughout this ritual. The 3 crystals for the New Moon are Sodalite, Black Obsidian and Clear Quartz. The liquid crystal that I have incorporated throughout the soy wax is Black Kyanite.
Combined, they represent and emit energy to keep you grounded. They cleanse negative energies from your space and within yourself. They neutralise emotions such as anger, greed, and resentment. They have the ability to increase self-esteem and boost your personal power, making it ideal for increasing concentration, as well as creativity.
The symbolism of the 24K gold leaf is that it’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. It is trusting that you can turn lead into gold.
The Full Moon Candle also has 3 crystals: Moonstone, Labradorite and Clear Quartz.
The liquid crystal I have Incorporated throughout the soy wax is Selenite.
Combined, they help with protection, awareness, balance, enhances intuition, brings forth hope and self-love, and finally, Goddess energy.
I have used silver as it is seen as a noble metal. It symbolises purity, strength, focus and feminine energy. Furthermore, I have used activated charcoal to cleanse, as well as represent the full moon.
- After gathering what is required from step 3, you will need to bring forth your worksheet and a pen. Also, have some herbal tea or water with you to sip on.
- Gather a lighter or some matches, and most importantly, a heatproof bowl.
You now have everything you need. Everything in front of you represents the 4 elements.
EARTH: Crystals and Selenite Wand.
FIRE: New Moon & Full Moon Crystalline Candles©
AIR: Sage and Palo Santo.
WATER: Cup of herbal tea or a glass of water.
Now, let’s do this! It’s time to release the old and bring in the new.
- Begin with a new moon bath.
Remember, the moon rules the water, and water is very symbolic of washing away the old. Having a bath in a beautiful environment is the pure essence of self-love and self-care. And, when we are in a state of love, we can manifest so much easier. For instance, when having a bath, create a loving atmosphere by playing some relaxing music, infusing your bath with essential oils, bath salts, herbs, flowers, crystals…whatever it is that makes you feel relaxed.
- You will create your space for this ritual.
It can be done either inside or outside, and there is no right or wrong. Some like to sit on the floor on a yoga mat or comfy cushion, while others feel more comfortable to sit on a chair next to a table. You can decide what works for you.
- Place your worksheet and a pen in front of you to work on, as well as your selenite wand, sage, Palo Santo stick and your candle.
- You will start with removing the 3 crystals and keeping them beside your candle. Once this is done, light your candle.
- Pick up your selenite wand and first cleanse your body.
You will do this simply by gliding the wand over all parts of your body, then glide the wand over the candle and crystals, and place it next to the candle.
- Light your sage stick and cleanse your space to remove all negative energy. Cleanse and say goodbye to anything that does not serve you.
- Now that you have cleansed your space and grounded yourself, place your sage wand in a heatproof bowl to extinguish.
- Now you can simply just sit in silence for as long as you need to connect with your higher self.
I find for most people, the simplest way to do this is to close your eyes and connect with your breath. Take in deep healing breaths; breathe in healing, positive energy and exhale energy that does not serve you.
- When you feel ready, open your eyes, and pick up your worksheet.
For the new moon worksheet, you will:
Start creating the life you desire. Don’t rush through this part. Take your time and sip on your tea or water, as this is where all the exciting planning begins. It’s time to plant the seeds.
NOTE: After you have finished working on the new moon worksheet, keep it in a safe place as you will need it for the full moon closing ceremony.
For the full moon worksheet, you will:
Start to harvest all the seeds that were planted during the new moon.
Next step is the closing of the ritual:
Once you have finished the worksheet, it’s time to close the ritual.
New Moon Closing Ritual:
- Take a few deep healing and loving breaths, and give thanks to God, the universe, the moon, and whatever else you are thankful for.
- Light your Palo Santo stick to seal your intentions for the New Moon Ritual.
Use the smoulder of the Palo Santo smoke to cleanse your worksheet. The smoulder from the Palo Santo stick incense will take your intentions and send them up to the heavens and the moon.
- Place your Palo Santo in a heat proof bowl and then extinguish your candle using your candle snuffer.
Never use your breath to extinguish the candle, as the two elements of air and fire don’t mix when placing intentions.
- Keep your new moon worksheet, and over the next 14 days while the moon is filling up, take 5 minutes out of your day and affirm your intentions.
Full Moon closing Ritual:
- Take both the new moon and full moon worksheets and rip them up into little pieces.
- Light the Palo Santo stick and let the smoke smoulder over the ripped paper. Then, extinguish the Full Moon Ritual Candle©.
Again, do not use your breath. Use a candle snuffer as the two elements of air and fire don’t mix when placing intentions.
- You will take your ripped up worksheets and bury them in a planted flowerpot, or in the ground near a tree or plant.
As you water your plant and your plant grows, it becomes a reminder that your intentions are growing too.
Sending you an abundance of light and love, Eleni.
